Meghan Markle has been vocal about the lack of support and help she received in her role as the Duchess of Sussex, but according to royal correspondent Neil Sean, she was offered support by Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. Speaking on his Youtube channel, the NBC royal correspondent said: “You can imagine with having three small children herself, there was a connection there, it should have worked on paper, but for some reason, it didn’t

“I can tell you that one of the final straws for Catherine’s patience was during the infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“Meghan cited the picture where both Duchess’ attended the splendid event Wimbledon.

“As we know, Wimbledon is very close to Catherine’s heart, in fact she has recently taken over there from the Duke of Kent.”

“Now you can imagine, when that story came up in the interview, Catherine would naturally be upset. Simply by the words, not everything is what it seems.”

In her interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex claimed “not everything is what it looks like” as she hinted at a rift between herself and Kate Middleton at Wimbledon. 

The pair attended the final of the tennis championships in 2019, and were photographed laughing together in the royal box.

Oprah went on to ask” “Was she helping you, embracing you into the family, helping you adjust?”

And while Meghan states that she felt like, “everybody welcomed her,” she went on to say that “nothing from the past four years is what it looks like.”

The rift between the two sisters-in-law was heightened when Kate was singled out in Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview as having made Meghan cry in the run-up to her wedding. 

Meghan alleged that Kate “really hurt her feelings” and left her in tears following a conversation about dresses for her wedding to Prince Harry,  an allegation that was previously reported in the press as Meghan reducing Kate to tears. 

She also claimed that “everyone in the institution knew that it wasn’t true,” yet failed to publicly support her when she was branded as a bully. 

Meghan did also add that she had forgiven Kate for the incident and that she had apologised and, “owned it.”

Recent reports have however speculated that Meghan and Kate are “closer than ever,” and that the pair have chosen to reconcile for “the sake of the family.”

The sisters-in-law reportedly decided to get in touch after the birth of Meghan and Harry’s daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

Sources claimed that the pair bonded over “both having daughters,” and can’t wait for all the cousins to meet. 

The Montecito couple is rumoured to be planning to return to the UK soon in order to introduce their new daughter to The Queen, who now has eleven great-grandchildren. 

Lilibet was born on June 4 and was the first of their children to be born in the US. 

As of last month, it was reported that the pair would like Lili to be christened in Windsor in front of the Queen, but as there is still no confirmation or date, there is speculation that the pair may end up doing it overseas.
